unexpected gifts

How to Cook Everything (Completely Revised 10th Anniversary Edition), Completely Revised 10th Anniversary Edition: 2,000 Simple Recipes for Great FoodMy sister sent me this cookbook in the mail this morning.  Is there anything more wonderful than getting unexpected gifts?  Not much, I don’t think.  She sent one to my other sister too, who thought it was a mistake because Mom’s birthday is tomorrow so she thought it was meant for Mom.  But no! it was meant for you, Sammie-Lou, so enjoy making amazing pizza and waffles and pico de gallo…all from scratch!  Here’s Sam holding her sweet baby man.  He’s so sweet, it’s not even really fair.  I have to resist the urge to pinch him when I’m around him just to make sure he’s human and not some sort of droid. I don’t know if his parents appreciate that, but a little cry every now and then is good for your mental health, I always say.
 Anyway, thanks for the cookbook, Ann!  I know I will make something fabulous out of it very soon.  In the meantime, I am enjoying its newness and touch it fondly every time I pass the kitchen table.

  1. Oh! I remember that lovely book back in my Germany days…I've tried to convince my mom to buy for me (maybe I'd finally be able to cook rice??), but, alas, she hasn't taken the bait.Enjoy!!

  2. I will probably only use it to make pizza, but it makes me feel like a kitchen pro just to have it in my house. Tell your mom to get with it!
